Mervyn Warns The Media

Sep 9, 2010 8:33:11 AM - thesundayleader.lk

A day after being re-appointed as Deputy Highways Minister, Mervyn Silva has reportedly warned the media at a function in Kelaniya today (9).

Silva has been quoted by the media saying journalists should not write in a manner that would ultimately force them to be hanged.
He had said that a certain newspaper will not sell without news about him and had called on the media to scold him if they must, but to report only the truth.
Silva was re-appointed as a deputy minister after he was cleared by an SLFP disciplinary committee over an allegation where he had tied a Samurdhi official to a tree.
